The Filogic 880 combines a Wi-Fi 7 access point with a new advanced host processor solution to provide the best router and gateway solution. It offers a scalable architecture that can support up to pentaband 4×4 with a maximum speed of 36Gbps. In addition, it is designed to bring Wi-Fi 7 to smartphones, tablets, TVs, notebooks, set-top boxes, and OTT streaming devices. Moreover, it combines a Wi-Fi 7 access point with a powerful application processor and network processing unit (NPU) to support full Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and packet processing performance and offers a wide range of interfaces and peripherals.

On the other hand, the chip’s dual concurrent 2×2 capability will be optimized “out-of-the-box” for the said devices as MediaTek also supplies the corresponding platform solutions. This will streamline the design process, maximize performance, and accelerate time-to-market.

The Filogic 880 platform includes a 6nm Wi-Fi 7 access point solution with:

  • Support for key Wi-Fi 7 technologies such as 4096-QAM, 320MHz, MRU and MLO
  • Flexibility to scale to pentaband 36Gbps speeds
  • Support up to 10Gbps in one channel
  • Support for OFDMA RU, MU-MIMO and MBSSID

The Filogic 880 platform also provides a host processor which includes a quad-core Arm Cortex-A73 application processor and an advanced NPU. Key features include:

  • An advanced hardware network full off-load engine on both Wi-Fi and Ethernet interface
  • A built-in networking crypto engine (EIP-197) for accelerating IPSec, SSL/TLS, DTLS (CAPWAP), SRTP and MACsec
  • Support for high-speed interfaces (5Gbps USB and 10Gbps PCI-Express), UART, SD, SPI, PWM, GPIO, and OTP for rich platform customization opportunities

Meanwhile, the Filogic 380 is a stand-alone, single-chip 6nm Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.3 combo solution optimized for smartphones, TVs, notebooks, set-top boxes, OTT streaming devices, and many other consumer electronics devices that are powered by MediaTek SoCs.

Key features of the Filogic 380 include:

  • Support for key Wi-Fi 7 technologies such as 4096-QAM, 320MHz, MRU and MLO
  • Support for MLO offering up to 6.5Gbps speeds
  • Support up to 5Gbps in one channel
  • Support for 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz bands
  • Support for dual 2×2 radios for dual-band simultaneous operation
  • Latest Bluetooth 5.3 with LE Audio

MediaTek will be demonstrating its Filogic Wi-Fi 7 platform solutions for both access point and client ecosystems at Computex 2022, which will be held from May 24 to May 27 in Taipei, Taiwan.
